I was finally able to scan the bottom of my two sterling bowls to show the hallmarks.
Bowl #1 - Has a knight with a plume from the top of his helmet with his head turned sideways. The bottom part is oval going into his shoulders. On the oval part is “S” or possibly an “8”.
Bowl # 2 - Has “B.S.C” (after scanning the bottom it looks more like a “C”)
Above the word “sterling” scratched into it are the letters: o/s/n…or if you read the word “sterling” upside down, the letters are: n/s/o…very weird.
I appreciate any help. I’ve looked all over the Internet and I have the “Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers” and have gone through it page by page with no luck.
